“The challenge facing Norman is not whether we

“We have high fees because
Student Congress wants to know
where every dollar goes," Maymani
said. “That’s why fees are so high but
tuition is very low."
Jahromi said because the OU
Board of Regents held its last meet-
ing in Tulsa instead of Norman, stu-
dents who were interested in find-
ing out about fee increases were
deterred from doing so. Also, he said
minutes from that meeting cannot
be found on the regents’ Web site.

fees," Jahromi said. ‘The Daily was

Most parking violations result in a $25 fine. However,

In response to students complaints that there are
not always enough spaces available for students to
park in, Glenn said there are an average of about 500
parking spaces open during peak parking times at
10:30 a m. and 1:30 p.m. Most of these available spaces
are located at the parking lot near the Duck Pond and
the multipurpose parking lot by the Huston Huffman
Center. . .
It is important that students who receive citations
pay the fine. Glenn said when parking tickets go
unpaid, vehicles may be impounded, and since the
debt is with the state, it could go into collections
and eventually affect future financial matters for the
vehicle owner. .....
OU will also tow a vehicle if it is still in violation
after three days and a written warning has been
issued. Towing is enforced on the spot if a vehicle is
parked in a fire lane, in a faculty-in-residence space or
if there is a signed complaint.
For students who wish to appeal parking citations,
there is an online citation appeal form that is submit-
ted to a student appeals board, which is appointed by
